BOSS ships GT-100 Amp Effects Processor
BOSS GT-100 Amp Effects Processor, the latest addition to the popular GT-series lineup of floor-based multi-effects units for guitarists, is now available. Driven by a powerful new BOSS DSP engine, BOSS GT-100 Amp Effects Processor is the most advanced GT ever, loaded with newly developed, ultra-responsive COSM® amps, updated effects with enhanced real-time control options, dual displays for easy sound programming, and more.
BOSS has completely remodeled all of the COSM amps in the GT-100, distilling decades of sound research to create the best-sounding guitar processor the company has produced to date. Reaching far beyond conventional vintage amp modeling, the GT-100 includes a host of all-new amps that deliver amazingly transparent clean tones to ultra-high gain modern sounds and everything in between.
At the core of the GT-100 is BOSS’ new proprietary DSP chip, a blazing-fast processor that provides unparalleled muscle for COSM amps and effects. Thanks to this powerful new chip, the GT-100’s COSM amps sound better than ever before, with a dynamic touch and response that truly captures the feel and expressiveness of the world’s finest tube-based amplifiers.
The GT-100 is also a powerful multi-effects processor packed with a huge array of effects, including overdrives, distortions, delays, pitch shifters, modulation, reverb, and many more. The newly developed ACCEL pedal lets players create explosive effects in live performance by adjusting multiple effects parameters in real time with one simple foot press.
BOSS GT-100 Amp Effects Processor’s user interface has been completely redesigned as well, offering easy, intuitive operation that greatly improves on previous designs. Dual displays make navigation simple while programming tones, with intuitive parameter adjustment via easy-to-grab knobs.BOSS GT-100 Amp Effects Processor also includes the acclaimed EZ TONE, which gives everyone from beginners to pros the ability to dial up world-class tones with just a few tweaks. AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE functions, which enable users to create original amps and OD/DS, are newly added to EZ TONE.
Housed in a road-tested, all-metal GT chassis with a sleek black finish, the GT-100 is ready for action on stage and in the studio. Eight onboard footswitches provide control over patch selection, as well as immediate access to the built-in Phrase Looper and ACCEL functions. The integrated heavy-duty expression pedal offers foot control over volume, wah, pitch effects, and more. Additionally, the new quick-access Manual mode instantly transforms the BOSS GT-100 Amp Effects Processor from a patch-based multi-effects unit to a pedalboard full of legendary stomps with individual on/off control.
Boss GT-100 Amp Effects Processor Top Features
# Advanced COSM® Amp: Beyond Vintage
With its next-generation COSM processor, the GT-100 ushers in a new era of expression and sonic capabilities. Recreating the meticulous details of vintage amps and how they behave, the GT-100 excels in not only cloning classic amps, but provides a new world of unimagined tones as well. The AMP CUSTOMIZE function lets you mutate classic amps beyond reality. Construct completely new, unimagined sounds!
# Simple and Intuitive User Interface
The GT-100’s unique dual-LCD and eight-knob user interface provides fast access and intuitive control. There are no menus to navigate; every function is instantly available. The tone-customizing functionality has been improved as well. All patches, amps, and overdrive/distortions can be created from scratch and/or customized with the friendly graphical TONE GRID.
# New Tonal Possibilities with the ACCEL Pedal
A new dimension of expression is available with the ACCEL pedal, which enables control of multiple parameters simultaneously, as well as time-variant effects such as FEEDBACKER, S-BEND, TWIST, etc. Experiment with creative combinations of parameters, interacting in real time with the pedal.
# New A/B Channel Divide Function
Another notable new feature onboard the GT-100 is the versatile A/B Channel Divide. Assign different amps and effects to each channel, and divide the signal not only by dynamics, but by frequency as well, with each channel capable of driving its own effects and amps settings. The range of tonal possibilities gets wider, and wilder! Assign smooth, mild lead tones to the mid-to-high pitches, for example, and heavy, cutting tones to the lower notes.
